Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: I love UD because we are a close knit community, connected by our love of learning, our enthusiastic faith and quirky traditions. The Core challenges you to excel not in just areas or disciplines in which you are already strong, but in also those areas where you struggle. My favorite Core classes are those offered on the Rome campus - that is where I really fell in love with learning, as I was able to experience my education in a tangible way by interacting with so many historical places throughout Greece and Rome. Our love of learning naturally leads us to pursue our faith lives ardently and intentionally, which I think is a testament to the high character of students of UD. Finally, I love that we are so fun! There is always something to do and celebrate at UD, whether that's Groundhog Day, Mallapalooza, or just the fact that it's almost the weekend at our Thursday night TGITs. Your time at UD will be both fulfilling and fun. 

Favorite Spot on Campus: The Mall. Always people to see and say hello! 

Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? I'm often grabbing brunch somewhere in Uptown. I am determined to try all the eggs benedict dishes Dallas has to offer. 

Favorite Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: Bread Winners

Favorite UD Event: Spring Formal

Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: Krakow, Poland.  I visited Krakow during my 10-Day break of my Rome semester - it was magical. The food was cheap, the people were kind and the city was filled with so much history and faith. 

Advice to Prospective Students: Visit! It's hard to understand what it feels like to be a UD student until you are here, interacting with students, attending classes and breathing the warm Texas air. I had no idea I was seriously interested in UD until I came and met the students here.
